The Body Shop Goodies

Monday, 22 July 2013


My favourite product from The Body Shop has got to be the mango shower gel. This smells amazing - smells so real and it's unlike any other shower gel. If you haven't tried this before, you are missing out and must buy a bottle! One bottle is £4, consider it a little luxury. If you buy 2, it's £6, saving you £2.

I also decided to try the Seaweed Toner so I bought a small bottle of that. I haven't yet finished the other toner from The Body Shop which is the Aloe Calming Toner. I really like the Aloe Calming Toner, it smells pleasant and doesn't dry out the skin. I apply a bit of serum after toner then moisture. That's pretty much my skin routine after washing my face. What's yours?

Botanics Botanics Shine Away Mattifying Cleansing Mousse Review

Thursday, 18 July 2013


Hello! This is a review for Botanics Botanics Shine Away Mattifying Cleansing Mousse from Boots. I bought this with a Boots coupon which gave 20% off any Botanics products. As I have used the clay mask from the Botanics line before, I decided to try something new and see if it matches the standards of the clay mask.

First impressions of this cleaning mousse? The packaging is nice and the dispenser pumped foam easily. I used it with my ToiletTree facial cleanser. When it got on my face...I wasn't so keen. It had the worst smell ever. It smelt like lemons - but lemons gone bad or citrus. It says on the bottle there is willowbark - maybe this is how willowbark and citrus smells like? Anyway, it wasn't too pleasant.

After using it, it left my face quite smooth. However, I can still smell a light trace of the scent still on my face despite having splashed cold water on afterwards. It claims to mattify the face - after using this product, it didn't make my skin feel too tight or dry but I think you know how I will conclude this review...that's right. I'm not going to use this product again because of the scent inside the bottle. I'll be sticking with my Vichy Normaderm facial cleanser instead, which has the best scent ever!
